Parzival and Titurel

Written in the first decade of the thirteenth century, Parzival is the greatest of the medieval Grail romances. It tells of Parzival’s growth from youthful folly to knighthood at the court of King Arthur, and of his quest for the Holy Grail. Exuberant and gothic in its telling, and profoundly moving, Parzival has inspired and influenced works as diverse as Wagner’s Parsifal and Lohengrin, Terry Gilliam’s film The Fisher King, and Umberto Eco’s Bandolino.

This fine translation, the first English version for over 25 years, conveys the power of this complex, wide-ranging medieval masterpiece. The introduction places Eschenbach’s work in the wider context of the development of the Arthurian romance and of the Grail legend. This edition also includes an index to proper names and a genealogical table, and is the first to combine Parzival with the fragments of Titurel.
